Car Accidents Caused by Snow & Ice

Inclement Weather & Driver Liability

Wet weather, fog, and icy roads are often blamed for causing car accidents, but the truth is that liability for an accident almost always comes down to driver negligence.

Level 2

Act of God?

While some types of weather-related events (such as tornadoes and floods) could be considered “acts of god,” inclement weather (e.g., rain, sleet, snow, fog, or ice) does not absolve a driver of his or her duty to “drive to conditions.”

If wet weather played a role in your car crash, understand that liability will almost always be contested by the other driver’s insurance company. Their goal is to pay out as little as possible on every claim, and unless you have an attorney looking out for your best interests, they simply hold the upper hand. At Montgomery Law, our job is to work on your behalf to ensure that you’re compensated for 100 percent of your losses. Call us today for a free consultation at 214-720-6090.
